At this price point, Honor 5X is offering a very generous package as a whole. The Honor 5X offers a full metal unibody design that is on par with Honor 7.

From its specifications, the device sports a 5.5 inch 1080p Sunlight display that is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Octa Core processor. It is mated with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with microSD expansion, while another China Unicom version packed with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage.

Besides the fingerprint scanner on the back, the Honor 5X also comes with three individual card slots which consist of two full SIM card slots and one microSD card slot that can support up to 128GB of storage. Its operating system is using Emotion UI 3.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

It will be available in Silver, Grey and Gold color options. The 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM version cost CNY999 (approx. RM672), while the 3GB RAM + 16GB ROM version will be retailed at CNY1,399 (approx. RM942) in China.

When it reached our shores, perhaps the retail price will increase again due to the implementation of GST charges as well as our weak currency exchange against China Yuan.
